    CBS: CSI had a very strong episode last night. I really enjoyed it. It definitely has some more life left in it. I hope to see an improvement for next week’s 300 episode with Marg returing. Even though the network is remaining consistent, I do feel they need to breathe new life into Wednesday next season. It would be foolish to keep CSI behind Criminal Minds once again. And Survivor can definitely be of more service to Sunday night. CBS should really consider more reality on that night.

    NBC: The network has to get rid of Ironside and then really consider moving Revolution to 10pm for November Sweeps, to see if it would have better retention out of Law & Order:SVU, which seems a lock for a 16th season. I think viewers tuned in wanting to see Munch’s farewell episode. Dateline NBC should be put at 8pm simply for Sweeps.

    CW: I really happy for Arrow. 1.1 and over 3 million viewers is great for the network and definitely helps lead off the night to create another hit in The Tomorrow People.


    Some really great ideas.. I often times starting tuning out a lot of peoples scheduling changes. Mostly cause there’s no valid reasons behind them.. But really thought yours was some pretty good ideas..

    Happy that ‘Arrow’ kept that demo! ‘Arrow’ will see a 3rd Season no doubt and ‘The Tomorrow People’ will get a full season.

    The CW has beaten NBC before. If I remember correctly TVD, Smallville, and Supernatural have all placed above NBC for at least one week. Maybe even Arrow in it’s series premier. Honestly I think TVD actually came in 3rd before beating 2 of the other broadcast channels. I often wonder if it would help if it was placed with the other channels. Like ABC, NBC, and CBS are pretty close together with TWC but the CW is hundreds of channels away.

    Nice Revolution sinking every week. Glad viewers are finally seeing its garbage.

  • Brad

    They should do a Toy story show 22 episodes a year! Tom Hanks is soooo cheap.

    Some of the remarks are hilarious.

    As long as NBC keeps “Parks & Recreation” in the 8pm Thursday time slot, the CW will be able to beat it there, and possibly for all of Thursday Night.

    What happened to The X Factor this week? Once Upon a Time in Wonderland? They have not premiered in my country yet, but this site is the only way I follow up.

    Thanks for your help guys…

    @ti……the cw on my cable system is grouped right alongside all the other major network channels. Intact it is placed right between Abc and fox.

  • Parker Wyeth

    I wonder how much longer Marika Hargitay would do SVU ? Isn’t Meloni in a new comedy?

    A little off topic, but did I miss the news about Goldbergs and Trophy Wife getting three more scripts ordered? I remember something about Brooklyn 9-9 getting
    an additional order.

    I agree if revolution does not climb back up to 1.6 2 a 1.9 it’ll probably be cancelled(:

    Ironside was a great concept, but the writing caused the program to hit the rocks. The last show I was bored out of my mind and switched over to another channel, something I rarely do.

  • Phil

    Toy Story is a beast in the ratings! Great special!

  • Amy

    SVU still rocks, as does Criminal Minds! Not as keen on Revolution this year.

  • rgxx

    Maybe NBC should move Revolution to Ironside’s old slot now.

  • Mr.King

    How can anyone still be watching the dumbest show ever – Survivor. Same lame crap every year. Watch a show like LOST – Revolution.
